SCATTERED P.M. STORMS & H-O-T TODAY… Thunderstorms are slated to pop up again today as high temperatures peak in the mid-90s across south Alabama and northwest Florida on this Saturday. More hot, humid days with scattered storms are ahead into next week. The tropics remain quiet! Let’s talk details…
STORMS TODAY… The thunderstorms across our region will produce scattered heavy downpours of rain and cloud-to-ground lightning. Similar to yesterday, a storm or two may briefly ramp up to strong or severe status, meaning an isolated instance of damaging wind or hail may happen. This will be the anomaly today and not the trend. Most storms will be “general thunderstorms” and not severe. Basically no tornado risk today.
HOT AFTERNOON AHEAD… High temperatures will end up near 95° in most spots this afternoon, with heat index values rising to above 100° in many places for much of the day.
MORE SEASONAL DAYS AHEAD… It’s completely normal for thunderstorms to pop up each day this time of year. That will be the story over the next 7-10 days as our weather pattern won’t be changing very much at all. High temperatures will be in the 90s with morning lows in the 70s.
NO TROPICAL HOTSPOTS… The National Hurricane Center continues to indicate that there are no tropical systems capable of becoming a tropical storm over the next 5-7 days across the Atlantic basin. Great news!
Enjoy your Saturday!
